IGHT is an abbreviation of the phrase "All Right," which can be used as both a response and a greeting. When used as a response, IGHT is typically used as a standalone declarative sentence (i.e., a statement). It is not normally used as another part of speech within a wider sentence.

IGHT can play the role of an interrogative sentence (i.e., a question), but it is commonly seen without a question mark. It can be written as "IGHT?" or "IGHT".
